Time for Truth Tools

I have been looking forward to this Christmas so much since I completely missed last Christmas because of the brain surgery. But yesterday I came down with the flu and am so sick. I start slipping into Illusion by feeling sorry for myself, but then I grab the Truth Tool gratitude and think how blessed I am to even be alive this Christmas. Somehow I'm hanging on and am realizing that my being sick doesn't change the real meaning of Christmas at all. I can contemplate and enjoy that even in bed.

I hope all of you have a very merry Christmas and that none of you are sick! God bless you all.

I'm sorry to hear you are sick. That is absolutely no fun. I hope you get feeling better very soon! That sure would be a great Christmas present. :)

Oh, bother. It seems that I've got some miserable flu symptoms too. I had to send my family to Christmas Eve dinner without me. I hope we BOTH feel better soon! :)

I'm so sorry you're sick. Flu is one of those illnesses that's awfully difficult to be perky about. But the good news is it will pass, and you will be well again to enjoy all the things you worked so hard to recover for. May the sweet spirit of Christmas and the Savior comfort you and embrace you with His love. Merry Christmas, dear friend. xoxoxo
